Summary: Just be warned, if you buy this game you had better have a high end computer and be ready to spend a lot of time trying to get it to run. My comp is a couple years old, ran AOC at its highest settings, runs Crysis fine, and I can't play this expansion without constant crashes. I even bought a new video card and it still crashes. Funcom really blew it big time, and they don't really seem to care about it either.

Summary: Buggy, which given the track record is not unexpected. but that is not even the problem..While yes, finally the is more to do from 20-40..nothing new here for lvls 60-80, not only that but the new AA system is a huge grindfest. Have a peek at the game's forums before buying, I was hoping for new life and am not really happy at all, yes the new areas look great, as does the game in general.
Summary: Its good to see Failcom Employees posting reviews again of this product. Absolutely no way this product deserves Five Stars. Its still a buggy, laggy mess of a game. What's worse, this "expansion" fixes the issues promised at release of AoC two years ago (DX10 anyone). They have taken me twice related to this title, once at release and again with this "expansion", I'll never buy another Failcom product.
Summary: For those of you that don't like long reviews : Age of the Godslayer is critically broken. Don't buy it. The full version : Well, I received it on the 12th, and after installing it (by the way, auto-install did not work, had to run setup.exe manually), I found I could not patch because it was in its SECOND major fix-patch cycle (6+ hour downtime) since the launch hit the streets on the 11th. Not a good sign. I am sure there are many more to come.
Summary: Age of Conan is, simply put, a dead game. I never got into it at launch but picked it up with the expansion for cheap. The first 20 levels are admittedly fun and fully voiced. However once you get out of the introductory levels no one is voiced and enjoyment in the game drops dramatically. AoC is sold as a Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game but frankly the game is just so unbelievably dead at this point it's just a Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game.
